A trial trenching evaluation was undertaken following a prior geophysical survey. The works consisted of an 8% intrusive evaluation with trenching amounting to a total of some 16,4000 sq metres. The evaluation revealed numerous features of archaeological significance including curvilinear ditches and a variety of pit and post-hole features. Artefacts recovered included a single flint flake and prehistoric pottery sherds. The archaeological data is suggestive of Bronze Age / Iron Age later prehistoric settlement comprising ditched enclosures and timber post-built structures. <1>
